SAFETY UPGRADES PROJECT
This service assists women affected by domestic and family violence to remain in their homes where it is safe to do so. Being able to stay at home means women can maintain their routines and support networks and keep the stability of family life, particularly where children are involved.
We assist our clients in developing and implementing personalised safety plans and address the counselling and support needs of clients and their children through referral and brokerage. Support may also include increasing physical security of the woman's home.
The service works to enhance the safety of women and their children by brokering service provision for respondents who are subject to domestic violence orders that include an ouster condition and/or a breach of an existing order and/or the experience of hardship.
This service operates in conjunction with all other services currently provided by the Domestic Violence Prevention Centre Gold Coast Inc.
